BPs Glen Lyon FPSO vessel has started sea trials at the start of its journey from the Hyundai Heavy Industries yard in Korea to the west of Shetland, where it will serve as the hub for the 450-MMbbl Quad204 development in the North Sea.

The Quad204 project is a redevelopment of the Schiehallion (31/16) and Loyal fields, extending production out to 2035 and possibly beyond.

The project involves connecting and commissioning the new FPSO, drilling of several new production and injection wells, and upgrading the subsea pipeline, manifold and wellhead infrastructure that will enable the full development of the reserves.
